Access to quality dual credit has been expanded under the Dual Credit Quality Act.
Join us to learn more about how:
Community colleges must enter an agreement with school districts within their jurisdiction to offer dual credit coursework.
School districts may offer any course identified in the Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education Package as a dual credit course on the campus of a high school of the school district and may use a high school instructor to teach the course.
We will also cover the Accelerated Placement Act, PA 101-0654, enacted in spring 2021, which amended Article 14A of the School Code. It specifies that, by no later than the beginning of the 2023-24 school year, a school district's accelerated placement policy shall allow for the automatic enrollment in the following school term of a student into the next most rigorous level of advanced coursework if the student meets or exceeds state standards in English language arts (ELA), mathematics, or science on a state assessment.
This amendment applies to grade levels 9-12.
